-- -- -- his team to a floor no star but when you think quarterback.
Of the Minnesota Vikings a lot of football fans think of -- targeted evading tacklers throwing touchdown passes scrambling all over the place.
Giving his coach of panic attack in fact targeted in the former vikings and giants -- still has the fourth most wins of all quarterbacks in NFL history behind.
Current -- Brett Favre Denver's John Elway and Miami's Dan Marino and still ahead of the colts' Peyton Manning.
While he wrote about his wins as losses football business.
And all that does happen it is like -- is new autobiography every day is game day and we would welcome game day -- NFL hall of Famer.
Fran target what a pleasure to see -- -- -- would you thank you very much did it first of all let's talk about -- because.
You know you work -- -- kind of critical of his indecision whether you can whether you have what you gotta admit what he did on Monday night -- -- race toward.
You played great here.
For almost forty year old now forty euros -- he he played great but on the other hand Aaron Rodgers.
If he has eight -- -- scoring throws for 380 yards yeah incredible ballclub played terrific -- all you we should mention you played the first.
Vikings -- -- win ever against the Packers now we've played that Iraq did for the first game against the Packers but I first gave members a new franchise team was against the Chicago Bears down and we deal 47 point underdog but I tell you what you were rookie quarterback -- -- working -- and 61 new franchise team.
George -- was the owner coach and founder of the national football mobile league in the -- We had no chance to be a movie -- 37 -- -- to hit by the way to the coach -- venue wasn't he keep it on the bench for a while he waited out Al supposed to start that game and and he didn't start me and we were behind seven nothing in the first quarter he put me and but that coach Norman -- Brockman put together the best game plan in the world.
To the play the bears and luckily -- able to make a few -- he did and I wanna talk management a business gets a big part of your life as well but I got to ask you about that because.
You're scrambling must've scared to be Jesus out of out of -- it drove the defense of Lola for those who don't know by the way explain what I mean when I say -- scramble well -- was different than any quarterback then or now because I ran more yards backwards and sideways and I did fall -- And I literally I literally did and I one year my line man.
My five offensive -- had at least one ball Kerry got run down the field gets stopped and -- black children could -- be trailing me along -- so I I I brought another dimension to the game and I played with great passion and enthusiasm and luckily back then we didn't have the protection they do today.
If you touch of the day.
You get a fifteen yard penalty.
And I day they you know they can hit us and throw us down and do whatever they wanted to do and I played eighteen years and at least I showed up.
Every day but 55 games so is on believe I thought -- I think it's just to start but innovation.
When you talk about innovation that's one of the links between sports and business.
Innovators are always criticize him for you got to stand up against a head wind out of people's sake what are you can't do that it's not does not done it that you did they have until -- do it he'll never win with this you know market either one of the greatest -- -- ever.
We beat the colts my my rookie year and John in the great Johnny -- after the game market even chasing me around he said this kid will never make it -- Kelly reports about what he was sent out about you know about seven years later he presented me the NFL most valuable player award.
And so -- you do that that you and without played like I had and that's how I felt the not understood the game I figured out how to do it out yourself -- You know and some quarterbacks -- a patent.
Are you dealt with Peyton Manning says.
Some quarterbacks get it some don't Peyton gets I've -- I've learned how to play understood how to play I slowed the game down not only called month plays.
But also help Jerry burns are -- to coach put in the passing game.
I understood exactly what we were doing -- if you do that.
You make that play a little -- what you were very successful businesses well you -- one -- -- software firm that -- I guess was worth over -- hundred million dollar we saw the -- -- sort of 400 million dollars -- started fifteen companies from the -- with my -- that lesson of standing up against people who say you can't do it when you do something -- did that help -- -- I just think I live life with a passion and energy.
I'm I'm inquisitive most of my learning it's come from other people.
And I've been in business all my life -- I had the proverbial paper route in Washington DC where you spend time.
And I had my first insurance slices of the nineteen year old junior -- University of Georgia and -- built fifteen companies many of my start -- when I got to ask you by the way.
Was there a chance that you might have taken up insurance at nineteen instead of pro ball now okay -- I got off good but I did well I did well enough to be able to.
But -- my fraternity bills and also by car because.
Yeah well they didn't have any money under the table at Georgia when I was there you out now when you look at the scene as the sports scene today.
Do you see anything standing out that because there's a lot of innovation but they're probably a lot of things dragon big big games down as well what do what do you see when you look at pro -- the NFL has always been a copycat -- We look at films of each other's teams and so forth and and we copy -- -- of the wildcat now some kind of a -- think it's of bad.
But you'll see the same place in the same.
-- much different it really is.
Except the defense of teams that win are the ones that put pressure on the quarterback even if they have to bring eight players in so many defense of -- -- don't understand that.
And they let the quarterback sit back there the other night the Green Bay Packers -- when the bike is.
They never touched him that's right and so he you know if you never -- a little awkward Brad -- Peyton Manning whoever made me.
They don't kill you.
Well a man who was never in his pocket and was happy not being in a pocket is here today -- target and every day is game day is the name of the book.
I had advised all the go out by great lessons -- about knowing how to succeed in sports but also visit the great to see you thank you very much --
